Thanksgiving Freebies

Is it about football?  Parades?  Food?  Family?  Freedom?  What?

It seems any holiday that has remotely spiritual connections has gotten muddled and commercialized.  We should not be surprised.  Dr. Bob Jones Sr. said that, “When gratitude dies on the altar of a man’s heart, that man is well-nigh hopeless.”  I believe it.  The Bible puts it this way:

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Rom 1:21

Boy that sounds like our generation.  We are “peculiar people” because we recognize all we have comes from God.  We are not self-made (except when it comes to our sin!):

All good gifts around us
Are sent from heaven above,
Then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord
For all His love.–Matthias Claudius, 1782

Here are some freebies to help you have a correct focus with your family and in your homeschool this Thanksgiving.  A free Thanksgiving lapbook, Thanksgiving unit study, and historical background for the holiday, including all the Presidential proclamations.
